The original Okinawa food is almost 'plant-based' diet = 98%.

Only 2% from animal foods.

 

The component is close to the 'G-BOMBS' diet by Dr. Fuhrman.

This diet help control weight & promote immunity ie. [ drfuhrman ] 

  • G = Greens
  • B = Beans
  • O = Onions
  • M = Mushrooms
  • B = Berries
  • S = Seeds

Table: Nutrition data of sweet potato [ Foods that make you full; Satiety Index ]

Boiled or steamed sweet potato is relatively low calorie food, highly nutritious.

And it makes you full easily (close to potato).

In general, 

Okinawa food for longevity before 1949 is plant-based diet.

The okinawan people like to eat about 80%,

not 100% fullness.

 

They enjoy social life, meeting friends & relatives.

The lifestyle there is mainly 'do-it-yourself' that makes they move frequently.
